Just curious: How do you all manage to publish big pictures in your posts (my uploads with format .jpg are restricted to 97KB or so - obviously I do something wrong. Thanks for your help.
I like to join. Greetings to everybody. This is my WA3+ (currently under tube rolling test) with Tungsol 5998 from 1963 and the Amperex Bugle Boys from 1959.

I had and still have Sennheiser HD600s as long as I may remember. Maybe since they are on the market But my HD650s outperform the HD600s. To try (I dont say "to come"): HD800. I use Sennheiser noise cancelling headphones for air travel since they are available, much better then these standard airplane phones they give to you (probably contenders for "worst headphone ever").

It is sold. Went to Great Britain.
As advertised on Ebay for CHF 139.-- Maybe someone is interested. Will ship worldwide, if not in Switzerland pls. ask for international shipping fee. To buy just get it from there. It is broken in 30 hours but apart from that brandnew in the original packaging.

The Senns I got at a mere CHF 380.-- (at the current exchange rate this is approx. the same in $).

I do not listen to any electronica music, but prefer jazz, folk, classical. The 650 then is still better to me than the 600 (I do own both). The veil that some people are reporting is simply not existing using a Moon Audio Silver Dragon cable. The 650 is as open as it can get for a dynamic headphone with my Woo...
